Auray WSS-2014 overview

  • 1Description

The Auray WSS Series Professional Windshields deliver superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. They are engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

This WSS-2014 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 14cm and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 25mm-thick simulated rabbit fur. This diffusion technology lowers wind velocity in a controlled air space around the microphone, thereby reducing wind noise without muffling the sound. It also features an airtight tapered rubber base that seals out wind from the rear of the microphone, greatly improving isolation and rear wind protection.

When used on a shotgun microphone, this slip-on windshield is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to strong breeze conditions (4-25 mph) and users can generally expect a 24dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the negligible high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the dramatic wind noise reduction.

In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2014 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Audio-Technica, Neumann, Røde, Sanken, Sennheiser and others.

The WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

Audio-Technica AT 835ST (BP4029), AT 897

    Auray WSS-2014 reviews

    WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones - (14cm) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal This performs well, especially for the price. I shoot wedding video and real estate video and it does well so far. It won't take out wind during a hurricane, but is far superior to any windscreen that ships with a microphone and doesn't muffle the high end. I used it with an AT897 (Audio Technica).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great timing The timing was great when I received this. Because the Nor'Easter storm arrived here in Virginia Beach. �The winds were at 36-60 mph, which this windshield is not rated for. But the curious me had to try it out. Yes it couldn't handle the gust but I noticed it made a huge difference. I'm sure this will do well in most general conditions and I would recommend it. I like the grey color but I wish the price could have been a little less.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised! Very economical. This windscreen does as good a job of cutting wind noise as the industry-standard Rykote dead cat, at a fraction of the price. The windscreen surrounds a rubber framework which slides onto the shotgun and is held by friction. It's a little unnerving the amount of pressure you have to use to install it, but it doesn't damage the microphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for outdoor recording I'm using WSS-2014 with AT897 mono Shotgun mic and DR-60D. This wind shield minimises wind noise while remaining acoustically transparent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reduces wind noise very efficiently Amazing product. Recommended for use by anyone making films that needs to reduce wind noise with their boom poled shotgun mic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Windshield Live in a pretty windy city and this little guy works pretty well. even when in direct wind still cuts it down very well.
    Date published: 2013-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product. Cuts out a lot of the wind and some extraneous noise. It's bulky, but still is out of the lens view on my Panasonc G85 with a 14-55 lens. Lightweight too.
